I've received a response from them, and regarding the "unfairness" of them posting certain videos on the front, they gave a very detailed and, in my opinion, wonderful response...

They: "may be able to find some extra codes hanging around." I feel so much better now! My kids will be far more excited-can't wait to tell them!

I totally agree

I know that we had a BLAST making our video together-and win or lose, we had so much fun, and now have a fun memory of our good times together...

All that being said, I totally understand WI's stance on no posting any links or usernames...after all, don't we all come here because we feel safe? It only takes one weirdo to ruin it for everyone...
Lets just put it this way. Hangs head in shame. Yes Mom you were right. This was a bad idea to start with. At this point I don't want to think of it any more.

Yes -- I have to admit -- this contest was a very bad idea from the start.

I was watching some videos the other day. Depending on what the title of the video is determins what other 'related' videos will appear on the right hand side. I almost fell out of my chair when I clicked on one of them. I am an adult. What would have happened if I was a kid. Once again I am against this contest and did not make a video!

I think Ganz made a big mistake on this one. But after this notice was first posted on the front page I never saw anyone with a link to their video or giving the exact name of it. I think most people got the message earlier.

I hope Ganz does not have this type of contest again. They forget that WW is really for children and make so many of their contests and hunts for someone in the clubhouse too hard for children to be able to do.
